BVRLA welcome MOT decision
02 February 2012
The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association has commended the government's decision to stick with the current MOT test frequencies.
Authorities had been debating the idea of changing the current 3-1-1 system - which sees cars being tested when they are three years old and every year after - with a 4-2-2 structure.
The government announced that the current frequencies will be kept, but it will concentrate on improving testing standards.
John Lewis, chief executive of the BVRLA, said: "The once a year after three years model works perfectly well for cars and vans as long as test centres do their job properly."
Drivers may find that many of the bureaucratic processes, as well as the upfront costs, associated with owning a car are bypassed when they participate in a car leasing scheme.
Warranty specialist MB&G also commented on the announcement, stating the decision will ensure current road safety standards are maintained.
